restrictions yet. the nra, which traditionally has the power to hurt democrats in red straigates who support gun control, has been notably silent. after shooting spree in the movie theater in colorado, several lawmakers from red states told me they definitely feel the nra's clout still here on capitol hill, and just being, wolf, in senator feinstein's front office for five minutes, i could see the phones ringing off the hook about her call to revive or reinstate the assault weapons ban. at least make that the first piece of legislation in the new congress but it is very interesting it's not just the nra keeping mum right now, republican senators, most of them who we've talked to, are declining interview requests. they just don't want to talk about it quite yet. >> we'll see what happens down the road. dana, thank you. >>> this unimaginable tragedy. adults are desperately struggling to comprehend, so how do you possibly begin to talk about this with your children? our own dr. sanjay gupta, he's getting some new information for us. he'll be joining us shortly. fr. ♪ ...could end with adding

instructions on how to shoot a .22 rifle from an n.r.a. trained supervisor at my camp, at summer camp. and i wasn't a bad shot. i won a couple of those merit badges for marksman and sharpshooter. and a few years ago, i had the ability to visit with my colleague -- our colleague, ben nelson. he took me out pheasant hunting. i really enjoyed the experience. so we have to acknowledge that guns are a way of life and that the second amendment has a rightful place in the constitution. that you cannot interpret the first, third, fourth, fifth, sixth amendments broadly as possible and say the second amendment should be seen through the pinhole of militias, it only affects militias. that's only fair. but then we have to have our colleagues on the other side acknowledge that, yes, there's a second amendment right. and, by the way, the heller decision now makes that the law of the land so i hope our folks who are progun realize that no one's going to take their guns away. before the heller decision, you know, there was a view, every bit of gun control is a way to eventually confiscate the hunting rifle
